Actor Sean Penn Still Doesn't Understand Politics


In Fast Times at Ridgemont High, actor Sean Penn famously summarized the American revolution this way: "What Jefferson was saying was, 'Hey! You know, we left this England place 'cause it was bogus; so if we don't get some cool rules ourselves - pronto - we'll just be bogus too!'" On Friday, he demonstrated that his understanding of American politics has not matured too much since, accusing the Tea Party movement of wanting to lynch President Barack Obama.

"At the end of the day, there's a big bubble coming out of their heads, saying, 'Can we just lynch him?'" Penn said on CNN's Piers Morgan Tonight. "You have what I call the 'Get the N-word out of the White House party', the Tea Party," he said. "This kind of sensibility, which is much more of a distraction."

Penn's comments, however, come as two national polls (WSJ/NBC and PPP) show African-American Presidential candidate Herman Cain leading the preferences of Tea Party voters. "Fueled by Tea Party supporters, conservatives and high-interest GOP primary voters, former Godfather's Pizza CEO Herman Cain now leads the race for the Republican presidential nomination", NBC reported in its analysis of its poll.
